This is the recipe for the fat-burning treatment:

- Baking soda
- To form the paste, crush the camphor tablet and mix it with the other ingredients.
- Use a plastic container.
- Massaging in circular motions, apply the paste on the problematic areas before going to bed.
- Then wrap the area with plastic wrap and leave it overnight.
You can do the treatment when relaxing at home or when working out.
